‘Sister Wives’ Star Kody Brown Divorces First to Marry the Fourth

TLC’s infamous show “Sister Wives” has too many complexities and controversies because of conflicting ideas between the polygamous family and a country which upholds monogamy. One of the sister wives, Robyn, is reported to have officially married the patriarch Kody Brown in Dec. 11, 2014, after he divorced his first and only legal wife Meri. Read on for further details.

Starcasm reported that Kody and Meri filed for divorce in Fall 2014 just for the sake of making Robyn his official wife three months later. The divorce was official in Sept. 25, 2014.

According to Reality Tea, Kody considers Robyn as his favorite among the sister wives. He is more than 20 years older than her. He also might have wanted to marry the fourth sister wife for better insurance for her children from her previous marriage with David Jessop. However, he is observed throughout the show to have no job that provides huge benefits. The divorce may be also be a maneuver to make Robyn legally stay in the family.

Fans of the show expressed their reactions about Kody’s decision and sympathy towards Meri on the show’s official Facebook page. Joyce Harris posted why Meri had to give in easily for Kody’s decision in favor of the fourth wife.

“…just saying this is so wrong why not go in order janelle, christine then robyn,” Harris stated.

On the other hand, fan Debbie Rathbun wrote on the “Sister Wives” FB page that she sensed the change in Kody and Meri’s relationship dynamic after Mariah moved out.

Despite the controversial divorce, Meri tweeted a photo in January 18, 2015, showing her birthday date with Kody at Hugo’s Cellar on Fremont Street. She still looked happy.

It is unclear yet if TLC has plans to televise the divorce of Kody and Meri.


“Sister Wives” is a reality TV series that follows the life of Kody Brown with his four wives and 17 children.
